Jewelry Hints, Tips and Tricks: Summer Jewelry Care Tips

Wearing your jewelry in summer takes a little extra care

 As much fun as it is to play in the sand while playing with the kids or just acting like one, be sure to remove your rings, bracelets and other jewelry first!

Even the finest sand poses a risk to jewelry as it acts like coarse sandpaper on gems and metals which will not only scratch them but make them very dull. This is something that really cannot be undone and may mean either living with a less than sparkling treasure or having to have a gemstone re-cut and metals to be buffed and polished. This can thin the metals and will make your gemstones much smaller.


  1. I never thought about taking my ring off because of the sand. I surf every weekend, on my free time, and usually take my ring off, so that I don't lose it in the waves. But I sometimes leave it on if I just sit on the beach. I won't do that anymore. Thanks for the tip.
